In England This is a Crime. In Wisconsin This is “Recreation,” “Heritage,” “Conservation,” and “Training”

Pitched in an unfair “cage fight” to the death, a terrified fox is given no chance of escaping the jaws of two powerful terriers while a gang of thugs joke and laugh at the brutality they are capturing on camera.

In another sickening scene, one of the dog-fighters brazenly holds up the body of a blooded fox in one hand while cradling his terrier in the other to show off his handiwork.

Northern Wisconsin? Nope, England. And there it is a crime.

Today, I came across an article about sadists in England that would put their dogs in pens with foxes and allow them rip the fox to shreds.

Jailed, thugs who revelled in animal torture

From the article:

“They revelled in the cruelty they inflicted and kept thousands of images for repeat gratification. They had no regard for the welfare of the dogs they used as their tools of cruelty. There can be no excuse nor mitigation for such depraved behaviour.”

Compare the above description to the newspaper “outdoor” pages here in Wisconsin that glamorize killing and the use of dogs against wildlife in Wisconsin. In Wisconsin the above behavior is called “tradition,” “heritage,” “recreation,” and in the words of Rep. Scott Suder (R-ALEC), “a “privilege.” Even worse the DNR in Wisconsin would call this “training.”

The United States always tries to act like we are somehow superior to Europeans, yet after centuries of war, after war, after war they have finally came to their senses and evolved. This while many people in the United States, like the hounders of Northern Wisconsin, devolve into forms of cruelty most gave up centuries ago and pretend that it is some kind of “right” or “privilege.”

Come on Wisconsin. Are we going to let this state sponsored barbarism continue without a fight? There is rightful outrage at the actions of the thugs in England while here is Wisconsin there seems to be total apathy toward the state sanctioned animal fighting that occurs in our woods year round. We can start by making our voiced heard on April 8th. If you are a Wisconsin citizen please attend the “Conservation Congress” Elections in your county and vote against the use of dogs against wolves and other senseless killing proposals. For more information please go here:

The DNR calls this a “hearing” but in reality it is a way to vote to have your voice heard. The DNR and the killing cartels want to play this off as a gathering of “sportsmen” rather than a forum for ALL citizens of Wisconsin.

Please participate and make your voices heard. Are we going to evolve with the rest of the world or continue to allow the killing cartels to control our wildlife?

And on the world stage if you need anymore of a reason to remind you that many of our species are a skid-mark on the fabric of the universe read this interesting article:

    In England,the nobility had too much time. You know, the lazy rich. Until Prime Minister Tony[ oh God I forgot his name] outlawed it. I think you can still fox hound hunt in Virginia. On horse that is.

    After all we DID come from Europe …..and they brought the foxes with them to continue their fun. Did you all know the red fox is NOT a native to US ? I cannot watch any more videos…I am so sickend by them I get depressed. The anti-fur videos (China) where they are anal electrocuting foxes and skinning them alive is the ultimate horror film..and it is legal.

    “Did you all know the red fox is NOT a native to US ?” You’re mistaken – Vulpes vulpes colonized North America after the Wisconsin glaciation, approximately 20,000 years ago.

    I love the photo of the fox in the snow. Beautiful. Nature’s animals are so perfectly designed.
